Loved the extremely friendly and helpful staff, as well as the darling room. The rooms are small as it is an historic hotel, but the square footage is listed for each room on the website.

We loved this hotel. Just being in a hotel with such history was great. The staff was very professional and accommodating. Our room was available early which was a big plus. We stayed in a derby room, which was perfect as it had 2 bathrooms. The rooms tend to be smaller, so keep that in mind when picking a room...

Stayed two nights here while house hunting for our own move to the North shore. Hotel is in the heart of the historic downtown. Hotel is very clean for a historic hotel. Do keep in mind because it is a older hotel the rooms tend to be smaller but come with all the amenities you would expect.
